Valve Gear Eccentric Parts for Mallet 2-8-8-2

Post by emarcu » Tue Dec 05, 2017 5:49 pm

I recently purchased the loco from an on-line auction house (not eBay). The photos on the listing did not show the missing eccentric crank and eccentric rod on the right side of the forward motor block. I am looking for those as well as the mounting screws and washers. Any of you guys have them in your parts box? You will be well rewarded if you can provide the parts! Thanks ao much.
